Not many people have I don't think, which is why her dvds are so cheap(comparitively). I lucked out and got the whole series for about $30. It is neat. In ten mibutes I got one of our geldings to "walk in sync" all over the yard in front of the barn with stops and turns, and back to the barn, all off lead. It is fun, gentle, and simple. It is very fun to play with.

I think that is great. What I see of the more popular trainers I read and watch on the internet. I'd have to order their dvds and you think that would be easy but actually a complicated process. Yeah you think looking at a garden would be boring...and it would be but when it involves a horse, another story.

Have been reading a few other books on just general training. I'm very open minded and willing to check out and research anyone.
I spend as much time as I can with them, and yes they have taught me a lot. I love spending hours with them either in their pasture or hangin out walking on a loose lead browsing the vegetation on the side of our back road. <<hence my avatar LOL<<

Thanks guys i'll definitely have to look into Cynthia's methods. LOL that's why I usually go through amazon or something to order their dvds because I know its so complicated at times.
I have a yearling who has a very mouthy attitude, he's got to chew on everything or atleast taste it and decide if he needs to chew on it, this might be good for him. He's finally getting over his i'm going to bite people phase. As for my mare once I get her to focus I can get her to do almost anything, she's very smart and learns very quickly, she might take to it. Thanks everyone!!!

I've seriously watched that 100 times and it never gets old!!
I like Clinton Anderson's methods. So far I've only gotten through the Fundamentals but they're working like a charm right now! It's all really easy to understand, too.

I like Clinton, Stacey, and Chris Cox...they all have nice inciteful work to help work with the horses in a straightforward easy to understand way.

My parents told me the other day I had to watch this AMAZING horse video they got in an e-mail about this blind and deaf girl who trained this horse in 3 weeks and had no tack and it was amazing. They open the e-mail and it goes on about how this amazing deaf and blind woman trained this horse in like 3 weeks and then rode to a song dedicated to her father...I was like OMFG OPEN THE VIDEO.

Yup. Stacy Westfall. I was like *HEADESK*. "Isn't that amazing?!" "Yeah it is, but certainly not for the reasons YOU think it is." I explained to them that she was one of the top trainers in the WORLD and that this horse is (was) a million dollar champion who's been trained to the NINES over many years and no, she most certainly was not blind or deaf either. I swear they almost called me a liar because they don't understand how the internet works or why someone would lie about such a thing.

I am a bit bias as I have known and watched Stacy for over 10 years now. I rember seeing Can Can Lena before she won congress on her and the same with Roxy. I like the way she works with the horses. Love watching her in the warm up pen. There is a place you can really learn things. Just sit and watch some of the best trainers in the world. Been watching Shawn since before he even won his first $100K.

Anyway I digress. CA is not bad. He has some good things. I stumbled accross Josh Lyons a few weeks or so ago. I really like what I have seen of him. Again Shawn Flarida has some good DVDs out. I am not a big fan of trainers like PP who have done nothing but put out DVDs. There are quite a few that have things that can help. When it come to spanding my money though I stick with proven trainers.

So now it is deaf and blind. It was deaf and mute. Lets just say that Stacy got a chukle out of that. But hay it is on the net so it much be true.

I really like CA's methods. They're really easy to understand and he does an amazing job on breaking them down. Its also nice how he doesn't take shortcuts.

Stacy Westfall is also very nice, I haven't seem much of her methods. I've seen a trailer loading, but that was it. All of her videos of her riding is so inspiring, they are truly amazing.
